Ribes laurifolium

Ribes laurifolium, originally uploaded by peganum.
Another winter flowering shrub and one of my favourites. Nothing like the blackcurrants to which it is related, this is a low, gnarly, rather picturesque evergreen, producing dangling trails of pale greenish yellow flowers from red bracts in earliest spring. Easy-going but probably best with some shade from deciduous trees and shrubs. Grow Cyclamen and Scillas through it.  
Male (the form known, confusingly, as Amy Doncaster) and female plants are available - please specify which you would like.

5L pots ~ £10
Too big to post - for collection from the nursery only.

Please please please, may I humbly request that you check with me that the plants you require are in stock before you order? Otherwise we'll have to arrange refunds. 

Thank you so much.
